Is Titanium a huge deal in yalls minds? I am stuck between the Omega 300, TB Ultra 7, YHM4300 TI, Crux ARK30, and a Gemtech one

Going to come down to 2 things I believe: Titanium and if it comes with a QD mount or gotta pay $125-150 more for that. Trying to stay under $1000 for it all. I am leaning towards a more lightweight suppressor with a length of 7.5 or less

You're considering Gemtech or YHM over a Crux?

I was wanting to go with Crux since they were local.

But being small.....no one had them in stock and after waiting 6 months to make my first purchase I gave up on them. I went with YHM and have been ecstatic with the choice and now own several more YHM products.

Crux has been around a while just under a different name of Templar Tactical.

Just because the other two have been around longer doesn't make them better. Both YHM and Gemtech are considered budget cans. Crux is a precision suppressor. I have (2) YHM titanium cans and they work fine but I do get up to 3" of point shift between shooting with or without them attached.

My Crux cans have virtually zero shift and even across multiple platforms. What I mean by that is I have a ARK45 can that lives on my 458 Socom and I have an Archangel 30 that I use on multiple rifles. I can take for example my Archangel 30 and shoot it on my 6.5-284, then switch it to my ARK45 and there is less that 1/2" of shift. Same applies if I shoot it with the can attached or not. In reality if I shoot it with the Archangel 30 attached and then removed there is 1/4" or less shift and that much could be attributed to the shooter.

The amount of shift is not as important as the repeatability. Most of us rarely shoot unsuppressed anymore, and most handload specifically for suppressed shooting.

I can tell you that my YHM cans are dead on each time that they are removed and reattached. I could not ask for better performance.

I like Crux (when they were templar tactical) but could never find one.

I don't disagree with you but not all of us are fortunate enough to have a safe full of cans and hosts to go with them so I was speaking making assumptions that the OP may need the ability to move the can around to different hosts and may have opportunities to shoot both with and without the can attached.

I was just relaying my personal experience with my personal cans that I own both YHM and Crux. If yours doesn't shift much that is great. That has not been my experience and there is no arguing the Crux attachment system is much more precise than the YHM system.

I have shot a Crux and YHM before but not side by side. I hunt with a buddies YHM and he lets me leave his QD mount on my gun to throw on when I hunt with him.

I just have no experience comparing them.

Looks like CA does not carry Crux. And yes I plan on using this one can between 2-3 rifles

I am talking about moving a can from rifle to rifle, Grendel to .308 to .300 RUM to .223

All repeatable every time.

Now I have 2 rifle suppressors and each one is the same way. I have a 3rd on order so me, my son and my dad can all hunt suppressed at the same time.

I started with 1 can and 5 hosts. All of them were repeatable, both in location and size of groups.

My group sizes don't change at all. Just with the YHM cans, I see 1-3" of point shift between suppressed and unsuppressed. And these aren't on pencil barrel rifles either.

Man so many choices. Correct me if I am wrong but a longer can will be a little quieter then a short can correct?

I really like Capital Armory. The ease of the process and not having to go anywhere to get it or fill out paperwork. They don't carry the Crux tho

not always, depends on baffling, material quality but all else being the same, yes length matters in lowering DB.

not so much length as volume......again with similar baffle design.

Most all suppressors will not perform noticeably different to human ears. Key is repeatability of the groups when you take the can off and put it back on. This is why I prefer QD mounts as I have always gotten tight, secure and consistent lockups and groups.

If you are going to be shooting suppressed all the time, then shift does not matter as long as it is repeatable.

Good info, yes I will always be shooting suppressed for deer and thermal pigs at night once I get it. No reason not to.

I have the omega and I love it. Had it for a year and a half. Close to 1k rounds through it. No regrets at all. I do want to get a Hybrid now for my larger bore pistols and rifles.

Yeah I like those but Omega seems to be quieter, cheaper, and lighter
